Rachel LeMeilleur at Schmalz Elementary was selected from more than 1,200 teachers nationwide.

March 25, 2010 – Katy, Texas – Rachel LeMeilleur, a local fourth grade teacher at Schmalz  Elementary in Katy ISD has been selected to attend the 2010 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J.  Mrs. LeMeilleur is one of 200 highly qualified third through fifth grade teachers from around the country selected to attend the intensive one-week, all-expense paid professional development program this summer. 

A panel of educators from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) selected Mrs. LeMeilleur to attend the Academy.  The panel based their decision on her qualifications, dedication to inspiring students at an early age and her overall commitment to enhancing the teaching profession. 

During the  Academy, scheduled for July 18 – 23, teachers will discover new ways to excite students using experiments that demonstrate various math and science concepts including force, gravity and probability.  The Academy curriculum works to deepen teachers’ understanding of these principles by conducting hands-on experiments that teachers can share with their students in the classroom. 

Schmalz Elementary is very proud of Mrs. LeMeilleur.  Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
